Mini Silent Auction to Benefit Project Prom

The Project Prom Parents are trying a new approach to fundraising and are holding a silent auction via RHTigerTalk. Each year the parents of the members of the junior class host an “all-nighter” for prom attendees after the prom. This has been a successful endeavor in providing a safe environment for students. Much work occurs in the months prior to the event with efforts to raise money.

Up for auction are three bracelets donated by Denise Norbury featuring “Love Tiger Cheer”, “Love Tiger Football”, and “Love Tiger Volleyball”. Bids can be placed in the comment section below each item on the RHTigerTalk Facebook page.  Auction will end next Wednesday, October 2nd at 3:00 pm.  Please find the post with the separate items and place your bids from that post and not from this article and thanks in advance for supporting RHHS Project Prom!




Where’s the Parietal Bone?

Junior high students in Mrs. Wheatley’s class have been studying the human skeleton and have now reached the bones in the head. In an effort to aid in remembering the various names they prepared labels on post-it notes and then tried to place the notes in the appropriate locations on their partner’s skull. Needless to say the results were a bit amusing.

Teachers in the district received a great supply of post-it notes and other 3M products at the beginning of the school year as a result of local resident Sam Hardin’s award at 3M.
